Bing in the Classroom

Kathy Shrock:

Technology directors can sign up their school district for an enhanced search option for Bing that provides an ad-free search environment for the staff and students. This option eliminates the ads that usually appear when searching. It enhances privacy protection for students and teachers and includes the ability to filter adult content via SafeSearch.

Student tracking and ads is the main reason I dislike using Google in the classroom. Remedying that problem is enough to convince me to use Bing, but add digital literacy lessons on top of that? This could be a big deal.
